Great Literature Discussion: The Hour of The Star by Clarice Lispector (Online)
March 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The devastating final work by Brazil’s greatest modern writer tells the haunting tale of Macabea, a typist who lives in the slums of Rio – underfed, sickly, and unloved, yet inwardly free. Edmund White called Lispector “an emblematic twentieth-century artist who belongs in the same pantheon as Kafka and Joyce.”
Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.
